discrete.bayes.2: Posterior distribution of two parameters with discrete priors

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) Examples

View source: R/discrete.bayes.2.R

Description

Computes the posterior distribution for an arbitrary two parameter distribution for a discrete prior distribution.

Usage

1

Arguments

df

name of the function defining the sampling density of two parameters

prior

matrix defining the prior density; the row names and column names of the matrix define respectively the values of parameter 1 and values of parameter 2 and the entries of the matrix give the prior probabilities

y

y is a matrix of data values, where each row corresponds to a single observation

...

any further fixed parameter values used in the sampling density function

Value

prob

matrix of posterior probabilities

pred

scalar with prior predictive probability
